Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar (Boca Raton, West Palm Beach)

Posted on January 10th, 2010 · Boca Raton Mexican West Palm Beach


***** Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar, 5250 Town Center Circle, Boca Raton, Florida 33486 (561) 416-2131—224 Clematis Street, West Palm Beach, Florida 33401 (561) 650-1001.

Just finished eating at a Mexican joint…Rocco’s Tacos in Boca Raton and I gotta tell you, Rocco’s may-be the best Mexican restaurant that I have eaten in-down here in South Florida.

Before I start yapping…there are two Rocco’s Tacos in South Florida–the original in West Palm Beach has been around for something like 2- years and the Boca spot which opened in late November 2009.

Let me start by saying, that the joint is great looking. Rather than trying to describe the decor, you can can look at photos and check the menu/prices at I will tell you, that this a hip-looking joint, that 20 year olds and 90 years olds will enjoy…and everyone in-between. There is indoor seating, give or take for 180, plus a huge outdoor patio.. when Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats arrived, it was around 35 degrees– so we dined indoors…Grandma & Grandpa Jeff Eats didn’t raise no dope.

The menu is loaded with moderatley priced quesadillas, burritos, tamales, tacos, fajitas…there is a long-full bar with 2 flat screen tvs, booths and tables. The food is outrageoulsy good… in no particular order– skirt steak, grilled chicken, french fries, chocolate ice cream, churros, roast pork, chips and salsa, tortilla soup, grilled mahi—some of the best, that I have eaten.

Now you regulars know, that old Jeff isn’t a big Mexican restaurant “fan”…that said (now I’m sounding like Larry David), Rocco’s is the exception to the rule…I really enjoyed the food and look forward to a repeat outing.

So mi amigos–we got a moderately priced, great looking, terrific food– Mexican joint…for good measure, throw in super pleasant hostess, Andrea at the front door… competent waitress Rachel handling the table– and manager Jeff Pisoni “checking” on ever table in the joint.—and you got a winner.

No fooling around, this Rocco’s Tacos is a homerun. I’m going to assume that the West Palm location is just as “strong”…if you get to WPB before I do and it ain’t up to snuff, let me know.

Rocco’s Tacos is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

    Have eaten in both WPB and Boca Rocco’s and they are both excellent. You are correct that this is a first rate restaurant.

    Word of mouth about Rocco’s in Boca had me thinking that it was a fast food kind of place. Your blog got me thinking differently.
    Tried last night and food is very good as is the service.
    There is also a great bar with a ton of noise and just plain old fun going on.
    Really liked and will be back.

    Yep, Rocco’s is downstairs from my work and I eat there about 3 times a week. First Class and GREAT FOOD.

    Rocco’s was so packed last night that we couldn’t get a table. So we ate at Sushi Ray which is in the same center. Have you ever eaten there? It was really good.

    By far and away one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. Great looking bar area and food is excellent. Not the cheapest prices but not too terrible. I have been to both locations and they are similar. The WPB crowd is a bit younger.
